but the Suze Orman show makes me so upset sometimes when watching it. When it comes to the savings and retirement portion. I feel like I am hardly making it on my paycheck. How will I even save up money for retirement and personal savings. I do not have a husband to split the costs with and I have huge student loans. I put a minimal amount away each month and it seems that by the end of the month I have to go into that savings to cover another bill, gas, or something and then it is empty again. Never fails. If you are single how much are you able to save every month or for anyone how much do you think should be saved? Again I do not want to get in anyone's personal business so you can just give a round about figure. I am getting close to 30 and have nothing in the bank to show for it.
